    Q:It does not appear that one can release the blade left-handed. Am I missing something or is it just unsuitable for a southpaw?
    by|Oct 26, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  You can use either hand. To use the blade southpaw you will need to use your index finger instead of your thumb

      Q:What is the "gut hook" for?
      by|Jun 29, 2023

      Answer This Question

      A:  The gut hook is used for butchering wild or domestic animals, for cutting through the hide and intestines.

        A:  It's really used for cutting a string or thin rope in a fast way ( you don't have to unfold the knife). I also use it to strip off electric wiring.

          A:  I think they meant to say ?cut hook?. It can be used to cut small rope, cardboard, or whatever, without opening the knife. It?s the safest way to use a knife to prevent cut fingers or hands, as long as the material will fit inside of the hook.

                Knife does not close
                The knife won't close. It seems to be misaligned a bit and keeps hitting the side of the casing. Can hear sound of metal hitting metal.

                  Where is the Milwaukee from 20 years ago?!?
                  What happened to you Milwaukee?!? Your name used to be synonymous with quality... the operative word in that sentence is USED because a lot of the tools I've bought over the last few years have been average at best. This knife is a perfect example. It broke while SHARPENING A PENCIL. And it's not like this is a fluke because a lot of your other tools have been of poor quality lately too... let's use your mud mixer as another example. I've bought 3 in the last 4 years and they ARE ALL BROKEN in some way. None of their chucks will hold a paddle longer than one or two bucket of mud mixed and the speed control wheels stick almost immediately. This is just one example of the many, many products of yours that I own. Please tighten up your quality control and make it easier to get warranty work done on your tools since they break more and more often lately. If your tools are going to need service I shouldn't have to put much effort or time into getting that done. My commitment to you was complete when I paid for your tool and warranty.

                    Best Knife I've Ever Owned
                    I've been using mine every day for over 3 years and haven't had a single issue. Metal construction holds up great and is well built. I had one before this one that was stolen, so I went with a cheap one and it busted immediately. I bought my current one and haven't had a single problem. I haven't had any of the issues the other reviewers had, though I haven't used it to strip wire or used the gut hook.

                      works great, feels great in your hand
                      I love the blade storage feature and also that it comes with 75 pieces of razor blades. quick blade release and very compact. super fast blade switch! Heavy duty metal material.

                        Quality
                        This thing is a workhorse I cut over 6,000 pounds of rubber a day off of a mill with this thing.It loads fast and the blade storage is a nice perk

                          My son bought this as a replacement for the one he lost then he found the one he lost put it back in his pocket and gave me this one. It’s an awesome blade. Is it open when you need it fast easy close and the blade storage is awesome.

                          Would not buy again!
                          The ability to easily flip the blade out and back makes box cutting way easier, but there are some severe drawbacks to the design. The most annoying and costly one being the fact that when it closes, it closes too far, damaging the blades! I went through 7 blades in a week because the blades kept smacking the interior! The other drawback is the fact you can't adjust the blade depth like other utility knives.

                            I am truly dissapointed.....
                            Since I bought it new, the "blade holder" doesn't open, tried to open it by prying it lighly at the small tip and it cracked immediately. very dissapointed. I love and recommend Milwaukee tools, ben using them for the last 40 years in industrial environment. loved them because they are bulletproof, but to get an unit using BAD CHEAP plastic is really a deal breaker for me and an opportunity for competitors to eat you up. I feel bad that you are eroding the loyalty of customers like me... I can't show any any friends, visitors, the built and well enginering of the Milwaukee tools. I just bought an extra power M12 screwdriver to add to my toolbox, the new one is also plastic and definitely don't have the faith I normally have... the power screwdrivers made out of metal, I've dropped them hundreds of times and they are scratched and look beat up but they are BULLETPROOF.... I am truly sad to see where you are going... get rid of the bean counters and let the engineers or customers beta test the new and improved tools....

                              Blade holder snapped off
                              I love everything about it, it is a true EDC knife! I recently lost my old one and bought a new one but disappointed when the front blade part broke off from the body shortly after purchase.

                                The company finally developed a better back clip for the knives, have not used while working but it feels and seems strong like it will hold up well and not snap when moving around in tight work area I.E. on the dock floor of an LTL truck logistics compan
                                I feel this box cutter will work well, but have not tested physically, it holds five blades now as opposed to the very first one which only held three
